About Coming East

I am a writer, wife, mother, and grandmother who thinks you're never too old until you're dead. My inspiration is Grandma Moses who became a successful artist in her late 70's. If I don't do something pretty soon, though, I'll have to find someone older for inspiration.

  1. Very historic scenery! I sometimes wonder when I see an old cemetery if those who rest therein would even recognize their old hometown today.

      One of the gravestones was of a slave who finally was able to buy his freedom. There is a long inscription on the gravestone. Part of it says, “Tho’ born in a land of slavery, he was born free. Tho’ he lived in a land of liberty, he lived a slave.” Concord and the surrounding area is such a historic and interesting place to visit. Thanks, Shary.

    The photo of the Battlefield at Yorktown tells the long way to freedom and the price of freedom.

    Beautiful! It looks like the exact same photo for all locations. Is it suppose to be like that?

    • Jenny says:

      Something must be wrong wordpress! My recent post has the first photo in the post repeated where all the other photos should be.

      • comingeast says:

        Yikes, Jenny, I’ll take a look. Try it again, because others have commented on the other photos. Must be a WordPress glitch because when I looked at it yesterday, it was fine. I haven’t looked at it this morning.

  11. Great pics. Are you traveling around the country? I’ve always wanted to visit Connecticut.

    Susan thanks for you so kind and understanding comment on my post Orphaned.

      These are from places we go to frequently, Julie. Since our sons live in Boston, we drive up there (12 hours) several times a year. Concord is just a stone’s throw away. My brother got us onto Enders Island because it’s private; there’s a monastery there. When my brother was a grad student doing marine studies, he had to check water samples there and made friends with the monks, so he has an “in” there. Yorktown is near us here in Virginia.

  12. Beautiful pictures!

    We stayed in Mystic once and were just down the road from Mystic Pizza, which was a good thing as I was seven months pregnant at the time.

Let me hear your thoughts. They are important to me.
